If it Makes You Happy…

A funny thing happens when you remain within your comfort zone….you get comfortable. You get cozy with predictability and close yourself off from the unknown, which can lead to a false sense of security and control. But sometimes you have to go there to focus on healing and taking care of yourself. My therapist shared…

Monday Musings 6.18.18

Ah, the elusive Monday post. The idea sounded really good in my head and I felt pretty excited about sitting down to type out a weekly post that wasn’t necessarily related to food, recipes, products, or the usual suspects. But the execution has proven to be challenging! Whether it’s the inability to put my thoughts…

Monday Musings 3.19.18

Last week I found out that the brand Garden of Life is owned by Nestlé…and I literally felt crushed. Now, I know this is old new so some of you (it happened back in December), but I guess that’s what happens when you aren’t on social media anymore…you become the last to find out a…

Monday Musings 3.12.18

So, I was lying in bed one night last week, overwhelmed with thoughts and ideas…and would like to try something new here. A new series, so to speak. A space for me share some things on my mind (aka rambles), answer questions that people email me, or maybe even present some questions to YOU –…

I dedicate this post to my soul sister “weirdo” – may we always live a life filled with gratitude and find joy in the simple things. Thank you for waking me up, Karina. xo I’m also dedicating this post to Tonya – you taught me about the beauty of unlikely friendships and to have faith.…

You are Enough

You are enough. Three simple, yet powerful words. Three words that need to be used more than they are. By me. And by YOU. You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge. Apologize for mistakes.…

What I Eat in a Day {AIP}

Since starting the AIP diet, everyone keeps asking me, “what the heck do you actually eat???” I’ve had to eliminate SO many of my staples – everything from black pepper, baking powder, and curry to bell peppers and tomatoes…and the obvious nuts and grains. My diet over these last two weeks have consisted of A…

There’s More to Health than What You Eat…

I debated long and hard about writing this post, probably lots of overthinking, but when I realized that sharing my journey is not only what this blog is all about, there’s also a chance it could help someone else. I had a big wake-up call this summer and knowing that all of it could have…
